How do I add subtitles back into movies/programs that I have recorded (once I have edited them)?

    I previously looked into the various free options for editing anything I recorded for keeping - i.e. editing all the padding and adverts out.

    I struggled to find anything that did everything I wanted:

    1. Was free.
    2. Corrected any errors in the stream.
    3. Preserved the subtitles.
    4. Allowed frame accurate cutting.

    Thus far, I have yet to find something that does all these things, in particular, some of the best free video editing software always strips out the subtitles.

    However, I read on another forum that the best option is just to edit all the adverts out and then add the subtitles back in later using a different piece of software.

    How easy/time consuming is this to do?

    What I do not quite understand is how the subtitles stay synched with the video if you are cutting out the adverts yourself.

    Any pointers would be much appreciated.
